It is time to retire an old friend. A trusted companion. Something that has traveled with me on each and every adventure I have been on since 2006 or so. It has helped me document the things I’ve seen and provided more blog fodder than anything else. It’s my Canon A580 Powershot camera.
This thing has traveled to Alaska to Key West, to the Ocean to the top of mountains. It’s been rained, on, snowed on, frozen, baked in the sun and everything in between. It’s been chased by zombies and dropped more times than I can count.
Sadly, at the Jingle Bell run this year, it got dropped on the road, and even duct tape may not save it.
It did an amazing job though, and today I tweeted a picture, and was asked what kind of camera and lens I used. Point and shoot! So I decided that today I should share some of my favorite memories it captured for me.
First off, I could fill 100 posts with the pictures of Michelle and I, but here are just a few
Then there are the pictures of the kids, again to many to count but here at just a couple
Then there were my bike rides
The Jimmy Buffet Concert
And my hiking and mountain days.
And finally, one last shot of my gorgeous wife
This camera as done me proud. As you can see, this is just a small sampling. It’s silly to miss objects, I know, but it’s always been right there, hanging on a carabiner ready to go at a moments notice. Michelle and I have had other cameras, but I went back to this one every time.
Point and shoot!
